Icecapades window display

The new window display has been installed. Through the haze of spray snow inhalation and being covered in glitter!! we're very pleased with it.
It looks great at night, so if you're walking past after dark, do stop (although judging by the reaction so far, I don't think it's possible to walk past without stopping!)
The ice skater is in a full 360 spin that would make even Torvil & Dean green with envy!

We are in desperate need of donations here at E61, the storeroom is looking very empty!!!
In addition to the usual "through the door" method of taking donations, we're also looking for people to help us with the "Donate Don't Dump" method.

How does D-Day work?

On a designated day, a business will host a donations drive. Staff will be encouraged to bring in to work one good quality item they no longer want or need, which will be given to a waiting charity representative. These goods can then be sold through charity shops to raise money for charities. In the current economic climate, some shops have found they are running out of stock as people are more likely to buy than to give; this is an easy and fun way of getting more donations into stores, where they can be sold for maximum profit.

Why should people only bring in one thing?
There are three reasons why this is a good idea:

* It is easier for someone to carry only one piece of clothing, record or book into work than to carry a bag full. This means people are more likely to do it.
* People can choose the one best thing to give away. Donations are often of better quality if they are picked out in this way.
* A lot of people bringing in one good quality item means a lot of donations. Of course, people can bring in more donations if they want to!

If you can help in any way, please email, call - 01223 312802, or pop into the store and see us.
